Subject: AMD Socket A cooling

The guys over at have dished up an article covering 6 of the top guns in the Socket A cooling arena. I can personally atest to the fact that the Golden Orb sucks, not only is it very hard to mount but my CPU constantly ran at 120F. I then put on a Coolermaster (aluminum) heatsink and my CPU never got above 105F under stress. The only annoyance to the Coolermaster is its noise, it is easily the loudest fan I've ever heard. However, this is a small price to pay for cool temps when my CPU has been overclocked to 880mhz. Click here to read the full article.
